# Calculating Points Outside the Charge Cylinder

An infinite line charge is surrounded by an infinitely long cylinder of radius rho whose axis coincides with the line charge. The surface of the cylinder carries a charge of constant surface density sigma. Find E everywhere. What particular value of sigma will make E = 0 for all points outside the charge cylinder? Is your answer reasonable?
